    Too far?

      Usually I like Kathy Griffin, I don’t know whether there was any missed context to this stunt, but I don’t find this funny. Actually the hair doesn’t look too dissimilar to her own.

      B grade celeb seeks publicity…..

    • The spite and smug, infantile vindictiveness of Lefties just beggars belief at times, and this is certainly one of those times. As others have said, if a Right-Wing comedian did this to Obama he would be stoned to death in the street, and the perpetrators would be proud of themselves.

      The great irony is that if all those who the Lefties look down on behaved like the Lefties, there would quite soon not be any Lefties.

      Wayyyy too far. Should be booted off the air. What would ISIS do to her?

        She’s apologised. So that’s ok then, move along.

          Her apology is hollow in terms of being ‘shocked’ by the response – this ‘making of’ video shows she knew exactly what she was doing and the response she would get.

            I agree – she’s just fighting the backlash and trying to remain employable.
            My comment above was dripping with sarcasm when i wrote it.

              I did note that…..:)

              I expect she’ll get more than a few tweets with links to ISIS beheading videos before they get blocked.

              Imagine the left-wing media meltdown if that was Obama’s or Hillary’s head………..

              In the Washington Post an article saying she apologises is hidden under the ‘arts and entertainment’ section whilst the New York Times has nothing at all on the subject.

              Kathy Griffin is much better than this (usually). She generally has a go at anyone if you happen to enjoy her humor – which I normally do. I have never seen her do this type of thing before and find this attempt “disgusting”. I wonder what possessed her to do this stunt – the money must have been good.

      Yup, too far. Bloody disgusting actually.

  3. Trump is not alone in believing that Germany has reneged on its financial commitment to NATO, and that it maintains a balance of payments surplus that is detrimental to everyone else. He is just the only one insufficiently cowed to say so.

    Given that the German-led EU is now building its own Military – already German Forces are surreptitiously absorbing the armies of its neighbours – it seems likely that NATO will be ditched by Europe anyway, as the German EU gets closer to its wet dream as the mightiest power on the planet.

    So I am not sure how Trump can be described here as a “destroyer of Western values”. I think that is Eurospeak for “How dare that ill-bred American not kowtow to the diktats of superior Liberal Europeans?”

    In truth, given the current disintegration of civilised society in Europe – caused entirely by ‘superior’ Liberal Europeans flooding their land with violent, hate-addled savages sworn to destroy the West and all its values – it is hard not to see the EU as the real “destroyer of Western values.”

      “Given that the German-led EU is now building its own Military ”

      It’s not building anything, it’s simply combining the junk into one pile and hoping no one notices none of it works.
